Stop me before I shop again

I'm really bad about getting something in my head and needing to do it NOW. No waiting. I'm a very impulsive shopper. Compulsive, too, which is a bad combination. Add to that almost lethal combination the face that I got a bonus on Thursday. I put most of it on my current expenses, but have a good bit left over.

Anyway, the battery in my iPod is fairly shot after almost three years. I have two options:

- Pay almost $100 to have my current iPod shipped to Apple to be replaced. They send a new iPod, and you lose everything that is on it anyway. (I've already downloaded PodUtil and taken all of my music off of the iPod and backed it up on our music drive).


- Spend $300 for a 30GB or $400 for a 60GB iPod which will not only play all of my music, it has a much LONGER battery life (15-20 hours versus 8 on my current one) and also shows pictures, videos, TV shows, etc. I already have shows and videos, but they are just used on my laptop for now.

So, poll for the masses:

Which option should I go with?

Just get the current iPod replaced - it's the cheaper option
Get a new iPod, but only the 30GB. It saves you $100
Go ahead and spend the extra $100 to get the 60GB iPod
Do nothing. If your old iPod still works when connected to a power source, wait until it REALLY breaks to replace it.
